Another week has gone by. I have been using a free app to track what I eat now that I finally got a smart phone. I really like doing it that way. I tracked every day and didn't miss anything. I like the scanning barcode feature. So cool. An... Read more

It's been a week since I started doing sparkpeople again. I tracked my food and workouts and stayed within my calorie budget, and today, the scale showed I'd gained almost a pound. I feel better and thinner, so I'm trying not to be annoyed. I ne... Read more

I am back on sparkpeople because I want to try and finally get to my goal weight. I'm pretty happy with what I've accomplished with running, and I know that overall, I live a very healthy lifestyle. But honestly, I've kinda missed being on spark... Read more

It has been a rough couple of weeks for my family. Without going into a lot of detail, my husband's brother (age 37) was diagnosed with a brain tumor, and my husband's grandma died. We have been on an emotional roller coaster that seems to chang... Read more

I have been taking pictures w/my phone of what I eat. It is very interesting and much easier than writing everything down! I have been pretty good about remembering except at a recent Christmas party, where there were so many people at the table... Read more

Learning to like the treadmill?
Saturday, December 10, 2011      7 comments

Maybe "like" is too strong, but I am not dreading it anymore. Because of the long dark hours, the freezing cold, and the fact my gym offers childcare, I have decided that it will probably be more feasible to get runs in on the treadmill through... Read more

I didn't eat great yesterday, but it could have been a lot worse. I only had seconds of roasted veggies and salad. And I only had one piece of pie. I did sip 3 glasses of wine over the course of the afternoon, but the shiraz tasted so good! I ... Read more

I ran this race on Sunday and am just now blogging about it. It was very crowded and busy race. I had to go by myself. This is the second race in a row I've driven to myself instead of with family or friends. I don't really mind it, except for f... Read more

The last couple of weeks, my long runs have been brutal...the kind the feel like they're never going to end, and my pace has not been my best, which is discouraging. Yesterday I finally had a good run. I did 7 miles averaging a 9.30 pace. I was... Read more

I am very happy with how my 5K went. This is my third 5K, but my first in over a year. I have been focusing more on distance this year. It was a smaller race, so there were only a couple hundred runners. It was for a great cause and benefited p... Read more

So I was planning on doing a half marathon Nov. 12. I had a great 9.5 mile run yesterday and was feeling pretty confident about being ready for Nov. 12. Then I found out, it is the same day as my cousin's violin recital - her BIG recital - the o... Read more
